5.0 out of 5 stars Highway Companion Special Edition, 1 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Highway Companion [Special Edition] [Us Import] (Audio CD)
This is another album of great music from Petty. We see him reunited with Jeff Lynne and there are hints of their old magic at points of this album. Lynne's production is a little smoother this time, less polished than 'Full Moon Fever' is how I can best put it, but still clear and perfectly in keeping with the tracks. This album is definitely a grower and I think some people have been disappointed expecting another 'Full Moon..' or 'Wildflowers', whereas this one is a different beast. Petty's voice is just as soporific and his song writing doesn't seem to diminish. Overall this is a good album, well up to Petty's high standard and worth persevering with, as it's gets better with repeated listening. This special edition has four additional tracks, 'Home, 'Around The Roses', 'Big Weekend' and 'This Old Town'. These are all good tracks and the last two are demos of tracks from the album, but however much I love Tom Petty's music I find it hard to justify the extra money for these tracks unless you are a completist or huge fan. They are really good, but it is difficult to find this special edition for a reasonable price so far. Don't let that detract you from the album overall though, it is still superb!
